    In Hebrew is telling us to stand firm and have faith in God Almighty the finisher, Alpha and Omega.

    a very humbling chapter of the bible, this should be our aim to enter that rest...and to remember that there are those who will not enter in.
  • Hazel Carty

    Growing-up, people were believers in God. We love the The Word of God. We read it: Home: School: Sunday School: House of God: It was our Soiritual Food. We say our Grace before Meals: home: School: wherever. We say Thanks after each meal. Thank God Our Provider. It just came Natural. We believe every Word that Procedeth out-of-the Mouth-of-God. We studied: Memorized: Visualized:Gods Precious Words

    True, very few reside in the "rest" that Paul speaks of. But there were some as Moses, Joshua, and Caleb who were found worthy to cross over Jordan into the promised land. As for Christians, very few as well since the 12 disciples. Paul was fervant as a Jew and fervant as a Christian. But faith ain't free, nor easy to sustain. God is the Judge, as well as Jesus when he walked in perfect faith

    Jesus is our Sabbath. We rest in him. The Sabbath day was a shadow of rest in Jesus. Keeping the Sabbath is not rest in Christ. It is part of the law which can not enter you into rest only God's grace through your faith can do that. Trusting in the work of Jesus on the cross is how we find rest not a work of the flesh.

    You are wrong. It isn't faith and words, but deeds. Therefore the old saying, "action speaks louder than words". Jesus worked on the sabbath, as many do today. AND HE MADE IT A POINT THAT MOST PEOPLE DO WORK.
  • Adam
    The pharisees accused Jesus' disciples of working on the Sabbath, not Jesus. Plus, is eating really 'working'? They were hungry and picked grain and ate it. He healed someone, but is that really 'work' to Jesus? If He started building a chair in His shop that would seem more of a real Sabbath violation in my view. Matthew 12.
  • Mari
    Jesus is our Sabbath rest in the holy ghost.
  • Daniel P. ley
    I want to tell you how wonderful it is to read this scripture from Our Lord God Almighty. Since Jesus Our High Preist has ascended into His Heavens, let us There For hold Fast Our profession.
  • Mimi
    the gospel was preached but it didn't do them any good because they didn't have faith in the Word. It's impossible to please God without faith...because the just shall live by faith in God's Word. We get faith by hearing God's Word and choosing to believe what it says and applying it to our everyday life. Then we can rest in knowing that He hears our heart's cry and will answer. God is faithful!

    We can approach Jehovah God with our needs in prayer and he will help us in our times of need.

    .The word of God is quick and powerful
    2.Let us come boldly unto the throne of grace
    that we may obtain mercy, and find grace.
    these word i have have instilled in me.

  • Walkery
    I pray your stress is lighter and your joy is bountiful. God's got it.
  • John madden

  • Lilian

    Verse 14~Jesus Christ is a superior High Priest because he will always be alive to plead in our behalf and he gave a sacrifice once for all time.
  • Bruce Wayne
    "Servant of God" back up to verse 9. Rest used in verse 9 is from the Greek word 'sabbatismos' which means a sabbath rest. To the people of God there still remains a Sabbath. Stoning was under Moses law which Jesus fulfilled Luke 24:44. God commanded his 10 commandments Exo 20), added no more to them (deu 5:22) and will never alter what he himself spoke (psalms 89:34). See also, Ecclesiastes 12:13
  • Eutychus
    "For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any twoedged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart." Even your thoughts, even your plans, your intentions, are known of God. You CANNOT hide even a thought from God. He knows all, reads all, hears all. He is all in all.
  • Servant of God
    We must labor to enter into that rest? They did not enter, except Caleb and Joshua? Jesus, the High Priest did? God is the discerner! Who can enter lest God permits!?. To David, Today, if you hear God's word, harden not your heart. The seventh day, the day of rest, where one would die if he worked that day, by stoning! Yikes! So to sum up, the Rest to which God refers is entirely up to Him
    No matter how difficult your life is remember that you have a great high priest who is Jesus.
    And he's ready to change your negative to positive if you belive in him and have faith.
  • A disciple
    AMEN Christina!!! How shall it be known that God hath wrought in us, without the effects? Can the grace of Jesus Christ be in my heart, and my manner of life, spirit and nature reflect His image and likeness? Should we then instead mislead ourselves by stage-playing and flattering talk and love songs to Jesus, and our heart not really be for Him? So faith without WORKS, DEEDS, ACTION, IS DEAD!
  • Christina Marlowe
    By Belief, By Faith...AND By WORKS:

    James 2: 19-26
    Thou believest that there is one God; thou doest well: the devils also believe, and tremble.
    20 But wilt thou know, O vain man, that faith without works is dead?
    21 Was not Abraham our father justified by works, when he had offered Isaac his son upon the altar?
    22 Seest thou how faith wrought with his works, and by works was faith made perfect
  • Servant of God
    A seminal chapter from Paul, who immediately distinguishes us and them, unbelievers according to Paul and us, who are saved by belief. For God spoke thru Moses of Rest ig the seventh day. Also in Exodus entering the land if Milk and Honey, which is a similar metaphor. That rest is not watching tv from an easy chair, but somehow finding favor with God due to and unwavering belief and in God
  • Clint
    WE seam to miss what we are being taught in chapter 3 and 4 Do you obsearve the sabbath day or is this just another day? We must rest and it is a holy day unto GOD it looks like we take it as unbelief, also as he speaks to us we do not observe it because of our unbelive
  • Chris
    I love the words of verses 15
  • SR
    Regarding Sabbath. In Hebrews 4, look at verses 8
    Praise be to His Holy name!Keep up the good work with encouraging verses.
